Last week Eldora announced it would postpone the 50th Annual World 100 until 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions. This opened the door for the Eldora Continental Invitational to take place instead of the September Crown Jewel spectacular that is the biggest event of the Dirt Late Model season. Back in the spring the Dirt Late Model Dream was postponed as well and instead we experienced the Eldora Stream, a race with invited drivers and no fans. Drivers competed in the same format as the Dream weekend. It was Tim McCreadie that won that event back in June.


Tonight via a LIVE event by DirtonDirt and FloRacing the 44 drivers invited to the September 10th through Septemeber 12th weekend was reveled. The final 4 entries will be determined by a fan vote to fill out the 48 car field for the weekend. The event will pay $10,000 to win each night and $50,000 to win in the Saturday night 67 lap event.
